The 40+ hour training program consists of classroom and on-site instruction on, among other things, cleaning techniques, customer service, and business management basics. It may take up to 8 weeks to complete the training program. The franchisee’s participation in non-mandatory additional training and seminars is strongly recommended.

The operating manager/supervisor, if any, is not required to have an equity interest in the business, but should satisfactorily complete the training program. The franchisee may offer and render janitorial services to commercial customers only within the area(s) in which the Coverall Support Center, through which the franchisee has purchased the franchise, conducts business.
